Golf Etiquette Tips

TOP 10 GOLF ETIQUETTE TIPS


#1 – DON’T BE A SLOW PLAYER

Slow play is an annoying and frustrating problem for most golfers and courses, which is why it’s #1 on our list. Be sure you are playing at a reasonable pace. Nobody cares if you hit bad shots as long as your not holding up play.

#2 – HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

Golf can be a frustrating sport when your not hitting the ball as well as you wish.  The important thing to do is to keep a good attitude and focus on the NEXT SHOT.  Avoid swearing, sulking, club throwing, etc.   Nobody enjoys the negative energy and it will only ruin the day for the rest of your group.  And remember…It’s just a game!

#3 – MAINTAIN THE GOLF COURSE

Take care of the golf course by replacing divots or filling divots with seed mix which is usually located on the golf cart and/or tee box.  Fix ball marks on the green even if they might not be yours.  Also, be sure to rake the bunkers thoroughly after use.

#4 – REMAIN SILENT DURING THE PLAYING OF A STROKE

Know when you need to stay quiet and when you can talk.  Try to refrain from speaking or making noise when someone is attempting to play his/her shot. 

#5 – RESPECT OTHER PLAYERS SURROUNDINGS

Try to avoid standing, walking or parking your cart in an area that may distract or hinder other players from playing his/her shot.  Also, be aware of other golfing groups who are also playing on the golf course and avoid interrupting their course of play.

#6 – DON’T WALK OVER SOMEONES LINE OF PUTT

When on the green, be aware of where everyone’s ball is positioned.  Avoid walking over a players line of putt.

#7 – WAIT TILL IT’S CLEAR TO HIT

Make sure the group in front of you is out of range before you hit the ball.  You don’t want to hit someone or create a dangerous situation.

#8 – HELP OUT YOUR FELLOW PLAYERS

Sometimes your fellow players may need help looking for a lost ball, picking up a ball,  or just keeping an eye on it after a hit.  If you find a club or head cover on the ground, try and return it to its rightful owner…Try to be helpful when you can.

#9 – BE ON TIME AND READY TO PLAY

Most players look forward to getting on the golf course and playing a round.  Try to arrive early to check-in, warm-up, stretch, etc. so you’re ready to play at your designated time.  Don’t make your group late teeing off as well as delaying the golf courses tee time schedule.

#10 – DRESS THE PART

Most golf courses have dress codes and require you to look the part.  Whether or not a course has a dress code, you should try to dress nice.  If you’re dressed the part, you’re more likely to play the part.
